Janet Meehan, 89, died on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. Her ashes will be spread on the family homestead in Anchor Point this summer.
Janet Meehan was born Nov. 24, 1923, in White Plains, N.Y. She was 12 when she decided that she wanted to live in Alaska. Years later she persuaded her husband, Bill Rabich, to trade his plans of sunshine and sailboats for her Alaska adventure. In 1950, they packed their baby daughter into a World War II Jeep and drove over the Alaska Highway into Alaska, settling in Anchor Point.
